U-46 early childhood programs offer a continuum of educational services to meet the individual needs of children. Early learning, developmentally appropriate experiences support children's social, academic and physical development helping to prepare them for a successful kindergarten experience.
U-46 offers a screening service free for all 3- to 4-year-old children in the district. The screening is a brief test of a child's development that can determine if a child is progressing as expected for his/her age. In order to determine eligibility for our preschool programs, families must participate in screening.
All screenings are offered in English and Spanish. If you are interested in a preschool assessment, please complete the TWO STEPS to request the appointment. Please be aware that this is not a guarantee that your child will be accepted and enrolled in preschool.
